I often feel as if when I scrapbook for the Colour Suite I am always about the colour. One of my goals this month was to use more of the subtle colours from the suite and use the brights as secondary enhancements to my layout. I love to have little personal scrapbooking goals like this they give me a little added push when I feel like I am in a rut.
This month I invited my friend Mandy Koeppen to join me and take the Colour Suite challenge. Mandy was excited to join me and the feeling was totally mutual because I am a huge fan of Mandy’s work. She had the perfect photo of her oldest daughter she knew she wanted to scrap but she confessed that while she is a girl momma she doesn’t often scrapbook with purple or sparkles so she had to make a special trip to the scrapbook store. To make the Colour Suite her own Mandy used a great purple patterned paper from Studio Calico (I have the same paper and almost used it myself) and she toned down the sparkly silver glitter paper with some vellum.
